  • Before the 7th. One of the jurors is going on vacation that day.

  • It will be days I think- a lot to go through and some very strong closing arguments on both sides.

  • I think it'll take awhile too. I sure wouldn't want to be in the jury's shoes!

  • The jury will be back with a verdict in one hour because they have plans for the 4th of July!

  • Why are they having court on the weekend and holiday? Isn't that unusual???? I can't believe it.

  • I thought so too, but I heard that the Judge wanted to be done with it. A friend heard that the judge told that juror that the trial would be over by then and did not excuse them from trial based on this being done and over before the scheduled vacation. He believes and has from the beginning that it shouldn't have been a long case, and it should be pretty easy to judge one way or the other, this has gone on much longer than he expected, which is why they continued on weekends and holidays (that and the constant breaking of his orders on both sides pissed him off).

  • Holly, I was wondering what would happen if they went in the room and came back out in 10 minutes (they needed a little time to select a foreman).
